(1) Primary exclusions to Adjusted FFO for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2018 were costs associated with shareowner activism and the fluctuation in the fair value of the Simon Property Group (SPG) common shares investment (due to the adoption of new accounting related to investments in securities this year).

(2) Primary exclusions to Adjusted FFO for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2017 were a restructuring charge and costs associated with shareowner activism.

 

“We’re pleased with this quarter’s results,” said Robert S. Taubman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Taubman Centers. “Our business benefitted from increased rents and expense savings.”

The company received significant lease cancellation income in the second quarter of 2017, impacting the comparability of the year-over-year second quarter Adjusted FFO results.

For the quarter, comparable center NOI, excluding lease cancellation income, was up 3.5 percent, bringing year-to-date growth to 4.1 percent. Including such income, comparable center NOI was up 1.7 percent, bringing year-to-date growth to 5.4 percent.

“Comparable center NOI growth exceeded our expectations again this quarter. The newest centers in our comp pool – International Market Place in Hawaii, CityOn.Xi’an in China, and Starfield Hanam in South Korea – produced especially strong growth. We also benefitted from higher overage rents, a result of strong tenant sales in the quarter, and greater net recoveries. As a result, we are increasing our NOI guidance for the full year,” said Mr. Taubman.

Operating Statistics

Comparable center tenant sales per square foot increased 6 percent from the second quarter of 2017. This brings the company's 12-month trailing sales per square foot to $807, an increase of 5.6 percent from the 12-months ended June 30, 2017. Year-to-date, tenant sales per square foot were up 9.1 percent.

Tenant sales per square foot in the company’s U.S. comparable centers were up 5.1 percent in the quarter, bringing 12-month trailing U.S. sales per square foot to $845, an increase of 5.2 percent from the 12-months ended June 30, 2017. Year-to-date, U.S. sales per square foot were up 8.2 percent.

“We were encouraged to see strong growth in tenant sales once again this quarter,” said Mr. Taubman. “Our newest comp centers and our tourist-oriented centers performed particularly well.”

Average rent per square foot for the quarter was $57.90, up 3.6 percent from $55.92 in the comparable period last year. Year-to-date, average rent per square foot was up 3.8 percent.

Trailing 12-month releasing spread per square foot for the period ended June 30, 2018 was 2.3 percent. The spread continues to be impacted by a small number of spaces that have an average lease term of less than two-and-a-half years. Without these leases, the spread was 9 percent.

Ending occupancy in comparable centers was 92.2 percent on June 30, 2018, down 1.1 percent from June 30, 2017. The company continues to expect occupancy at year-end to be approximately 95 percent.

Leased space in comparable centers was 94.9 percent on June 30, 2018, down 0.7 percent from June 30, 2017.

Fourth Taubman Asia Investment

In June, the company made an initial investment in a joint venture with Shinsegae Group to build, lease and manage a 1.1 million square foot shopping mall in Anseong, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, a high growth city in the Greater Seoul Metropolitan Area. The total project cost is expected to be between $570 and $600 million. Taubman’s total investment is expected to be between $140 and $150 million, representing a 24.5 percent interest in the center (although the company currently owns and is funding 49% of the project until an additional capital partner is admitted). Shinsegae owns 51 percent of the project, and an institutional investor is expected to own the other 24.5 percent. Starfield Anseong will be anchored by E-Mart Traders, PK Supermarket, ElectroMart, Sports Monster, an upscale cinema and several of Shinsegae’s successful entertainment concepts including Aquafield and Toy Kingdom. The center is expected to open in late 2020. The company’s unlevered after-tax return at stabilization is expected to be 6.25 to 6.75 percent before performance-related fee income from the anticipated capital partner.

Financing Activity

In April, Fair Oaks Mall (Fairfax, Va.), the company’s 50 percent owned joint venture, completed a $260 million, five-year, non-recourse financing. The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 5.32 percent. Proceeds were used to pay off the previous $259 million loan.

2018 Guidance

The company is updating several guidance measures for 2018.

EPS is now expected to be in the range of $1.11 to $1.26 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $0.99 to $1.23.

FFO, which includes $0.11 per diluted common share of year-to-date adjustments, is now expected to be in the range of $3.63 to $3.73 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $3.56 to $3.70.

Adjusted FFO, which excludes the $0.11 per diluted common share of year-to-date adjustments, is expected to be in the range of $3.74 to $3.84 per diluted common share, revised from the previous range of $3.72 to $3.86.

The company is increasing its comparable center NOI growth guidance. It is now expected to be 3 to 4 percent for the year, up from the previous range of 2 to 3 percent.

The company’s share of consolidated and unconsolidated interest expense is now expected to be $189 to $192 million, up from the previous range of $185 to $190 million. Capitalized interest is now expected to be lower, resulting in greater interest expense for the year.

The company’s other guidance assumptions are unchanged. The company’s guidance does not reflect any future costs related to shareowner activism or fluctuation in the fair value of the SPG common shares it owns.

TAUBMAN CENTERS, INC.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain non-GAAP operating measures, including EBITDA, beneficial interest in EBITDA, Net Operating Income, and Funds from Operations. These measures are reconciled to the most comparable GAAP measures. Additional information as to the use of these measures are as follows.

EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of the Operating Partnership's consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. Beneficial interest in EBITDA represents the Operating Partnership’s share of the earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of its consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. The Company believes EBITDA and beneficial interest in EBITDA provide useful indicators of operating performance, as it is customary in the real estate and shopping center business to evaluate the performance of properties on a basis unaffected by capital structure.

The Company uses Net Operating Income (NOI) as an alternative measure to evaluate the operating performance of centers, both on individual and stabilized portfolio bases, and in formulating corporate goals and compensation. The Company defines NOI as property-level operating revenues (includes rental income excluding straight-line adjustments of minimum rent) less maintenance, property taxes, utilities, promotion, ground rent (including straight-line adjustments), and other property operating expenses. Since NOI excludes general and administrative expenses, pre-development charges, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, restructuring charges, and gains from peripheral land and property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, reflects the revenues and expenses most directly associated with owning and operating rental properties, as well as the impact on their operations from trends in tenant sales, occupancy and rental rates, and operating costs. The Company also uses NOI excluding lease cancellation income as an alternative measure because this income may vary significantly from period to period, which can affect comparability and trend analysis. The Company generally provides separate projections for expected comparable center NOI growth and lease cancellation income. Comparable centers are generally defined as centers that were owned and open for the entire current and preceding period presented, excluding centers impacted by significant redevelopment activity. In addition, The Mall of San Juan has been excluded from “comparable center” statistics as a result of Hurricane Maria and the expectation that the center’s performance will be impacted for the foreseeable future.

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines Funds from Operations (FFO) as net income (computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of properties and impairment writedowns of depreciable real estate, plus real estate related depreciation and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, the Company and most industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results that exclude historical cost depreciation to be useful in evaluating the operating performance of REITs. The Company primarily uses FFO in measuring performance and in formulating corporate goals and compensation.

The Company may also present adjusted versions of NOI, beneficial interest in EBITDA, and FFO when used by management to evaluate operating performance when certain significant items have impacted results that affect comparability with prior or future periods due to the nature or amounts of these items. The Company believes the disclosure of the adjusted items is similarly useful to investors and others to understand management's view on comparability of such measures between periods. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, FFO and EBITDA were adjusted to exclude a reduction of a previously expensed restructuring charge, costs incurred associated with shareowner activism, and the fluctuation in the fair value of the SPG common shares investment. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, FFO was also adjusted for a charge recognized in connection with the write-off of deferred financing costs related to the early payoff of our $475 million unsecured term loan. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, FFO and EBITDA were adjusted to exclude a restructuring charge and costs incurred associated with shareowner activism. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, FFO was also adjusted for a charge recognized in connection with the partial write-off of deferred financing costs related to an amendment of our primary unsecured revolving line of credit in February 2017. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, EBITDA was also adjusted to exclude a gain recognized in connection with the sale of the Valencia Place office tower at Country Club Plaza.

These non-GAAP measures as presented by the Company are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other REITs due to the fact that not all REITs use the same definitions. These measures should not be considered alternatives to net income or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Additionally, these measures do not represent cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities as defined by GAAP.

The Company provides its beneficial interest in certain financial information of its Unconsolidated Joint Ventures. This beneficial information is derived as the Company’s ownership interest in the investee multiplied by the specific financial statement item being presented. Investors are cautioned that deriving the Company’s beneficial interest in this manner may not accurately depict the legal and economic implications of holding a non-controlling interest in the investee.
